Pop Up Box Card

July 25, 2019

I have been working my way through a series of fancy fold cards and today’s card is one of those.  This card is called a Pop Up Box Card and will fit into a standard envelope.  My base card is Old Olive.  I created the tall image panel by stamping the mermaid image from the Magical Mermaid stamp set onto Whisper White card using Memento Tuxedo Black ink.  I masked the image and stamped the seaweed image from the same stamp set across the bottom of the Whisper White card using Soft Sea Foam ink.  I stamped the single seaweed image from the Sea of Textures stamp set across the bottom of the card using Old Olive ink.  With the mask still in place, I stamped the dotted image from the Magical Mermaid stamp set using Balmy Blue ink.  I removed the mask and coloured the Mermaid using Flirty Flamingo, Daffodil Delight and Ivory Stampin’ Blends.  The image panel is attached to Basic Black card and then the card base.  I stamped the greeting from the Magical Mermaid stamp set onto Whisper White card using Old Olive ink.  I attached two small and one large star fish which I cut from Crumb Cake card using the Under the Sea Dies.  This panel is attached to the panel on the front of the card.  I stamped the netting image from the Sea of Textures stamp set onto two panels of Whisper White card using Crumb Cake ink.  I stamped the small and large seaweed image from the Sea of Textures Stamp set over the net image using Old Olive ink.  I attached a small “sand dollar” image which I cut from Crumb Cake card to each panel. These panels go on the side panels of the box card.  I decorated three more panels the same size using the border image from the Sea of Textures stamp set and Crumb Cake ink.  These panels decorate the lower part of the front and sides of the box.  To decorate the back of the box, I attached Whisper White card to Basic Black card before attaching to the back of the Mermaid panel.  I attached two small pieces of Old Olive card across the middle of the box.  I cut the long seaweed image, the small and the large seaweed images from the Under The Sea Dies from Soft Sea Foam and Old Olive card.  I attached the die cuts to the two central panels, making sure that they were different heights.  To place the card in an envelope, you fold up the side and front flaps and fold it down.

This is such a clever fold.  I know that this fold is one that would be fantastic for children but also for the man in your life.  Men seem to love things that have a fold or mechanism to make them a little different.

Bye for now,
